Product Description

(Book). A fitting tribute to the troubled genius who revolutionized electric bass playing and bridged the gaps between jazz, R&B, rock and funk. From his early days in R&B club bands through his international stardom with fusion group Weather Report and on to his solo career and tragic death at age 35, this book portrays the life and music of Jaco Pastorius, the self-proclaimed “world’s greatest bass player.” This special anniversary edition features new interviews with Jaco’s childhood friends, prominent bass players of Jaco’s era and afterward, and girlfriend Teresa Nagell, who was with Jaco in the last few years of his life. Some incidents from the first edition have been further researched and expanded to become full chapters. Exclusive to this edition, the CD features newly revealed music tracks from Jaco’s early years along with spoken testimonials from Jaco’s friends and colleagues. The book also contains new, never-before-seen photos acquired from the Pastorius estate.
